every religion and culture has one thing in common, a doomsday scenario. do you think that's why so many people take these predictions seriously? >> listen, you said it right there. every religion no matter what they disagree on has the end of the world moment. almost every one of them. the answer is oddly in the fine print. that's the interesting part. who knows what will be next. there will be one that's next. i don't think it is because religion tells us. but we don't want to feel like we are a dumb animal that gets wiped out. we see it as judgment. that's what you see in religions. we want to feel someone is out there. there is nothing wrong with feeling like we are not alone in the universe. why do we keep looking to this disaster and why will there be another? we just want to feel like we are not alone. the only thing you don't want to see is people being taken advantage of for that. >> there are several more doomsday predictions in the near future i'm sure will get as much hype as the dateses get closer. why do you think people are so fascinated. even when this one didn't pan out

and religion t is widespread. there is frustration about it. as julie said there is a deep vein of frustration in the country. and i think that is what we are seeing, this this one case has sparked off, you know, this citizen's protest didn't come out of nowhere. it's not a new issue. there have been sexual violence against women in india for many, many decades. but i think the sense ever a new feeling of kind of liberation about being able to take to the streets and say something about it is why we are seeing so much action right now. >> when a woman overcomes her own misgivings, pressure from her own family, and actually goes to the police, what happens? are the accusations investigated? are the accused tried? >> well this is one of the bigger problems, ray. because first of all it has to be said that the vast majority of the rapes are not reported in india as all over the world. but especially in india because it is a huge that would. there is a cultural no-no against it. it can ruin your life, if are you raped will you not get married. you could be thrown out of your village. so that is th
